Watch eBirders in real-time!

Alex Lamoreaux|

With thousands of eBird checklists being submitted from around the world on a daily basis, the folks at eBird have created a real-time mapfeatureImage_summary showing exactly where checklists are being entered!

From eBird: “We’ve developed a new map visualization that displays live eBird checklist submissions. Each time a new checklist is entered, a yellow dot appears at the location where the observations were made. It fades after a second to a gray dot. Each gray dot on the map represents a location where at least one checklist was entered during the current day. The total number of checklists entered for the current day appears at the top right. The day resets at midnight Eastern Time. We encourage you to view the map and see where your fellow eBirders are entering data right now from all over the world.”
